My two moms


I was made by my mom and a donor. A donor is someone who will give up something they have, specifically medical, for someone else who needs it; in this case, my mom needed sperm to make me. Canterbury Elementary was my school, and that was the place where it all started. In the first couple of years of my life, I thought I was either adopted or something much more complicated and hard to think about. In the end, I was right about the complicated part when I found out. My friends always thought that I was lucky to have two moms, but they were never right. My friends used to make up stories that I was an abandoned princess or an orphan, but they were wrong.
